I observed a red-bellied woodpecker today at Herrick's cove, it appeared to
be placing it's ear on the tree as it was foraging. It placed the side of
it's head right on the tree which I interpreted as listening for insects.
Can anyone tell me if this is a known behavior of the red bellied
woodpecker? Or of other woodpeckers? I was able to get a series of photos
showing the bird placing it's ear against the tree.
